With the holidays fast approaching, I am always looking for a recipe that I can take to someone’s home as either a hostess gift or a dessert. I found this colorful, delicious and oh so easy recipe for Chocolate Bark. The recipe calls for dried cherries and hazelnuts in addition to the pistachios. I did not have either of those, and being that I was in a hurry, I used what was in my pantry: dried cranberries and almonds, which I though would be a perfectly fine substitute. If you would like to get a first hand tasting of this treat, come to the FabuLesley party at Calypso, Century tomorrow night, Monday December 15 from 7-9. See you there!
2 10-oz bags Semisweet Chocolate (baking chips or chocolate chips)
½ cup shelled unsalted pistachios, chopped
½ cup almonds, chopped
½ cup dried cranberries, chopped
½ teaspoon coarse sea salt
